The Game wants to turn you into a hustling drug kingpin and street soldier -- and he can guarantee you won't get arrested too ... since it's all virtual in his new app "Block Wars."
Sources tell TMZ the rapper teamed with IM3 Gaming Studios to create a gritty mobile game set in Compton. The goal? Conquer one street at a time while competing with rival gangs to sell weed, guns, knives, buildings and cars. All in the name of fueling the economy, of course.
Game stars as the hood boss in his hometown, but there are plans to expand the game to include an East Coast vs. West Coast war.
Game's game is set to drop sometime this summer and it'll be free. In-app purchases -- for weapons, cars, goons, etc. -- will range from 99 cents to $99.
"The Wonder Years" star Jason Hervey just learned the hard way ... never take Ambien before you get behind the wheel.
Tennessee law enforcement tells TMZ ... they got a call about a swerving pickup truck and were able to locate it. Cops say Hervey was behind the wheel and totally out of it ... slurring, red-eyed and confused.
Cops say Hervey miserably failed a field sobriety test. They searched the pickup and found a loaded handgun, but the actor had a permit. Hervey was booked for DUI and carrying a weapon while under the influence.
The incident went down back in January 2015 but it went unnoticed, until this past weekend when Hervey served 48 hours behind bars for a misdemeanor DUI charge. The weapons charge was dropped.
Jason, who played Wayne Arnold on the show, tells us he has a prescription for Ambien and stupidly took one before hopping in the truck for a quick errand, he had no alcohol in his system ... he's thankful cops got him off the road before anything really bad happened.
Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio is best known for playing Gina Montana, younger sister of Tony Montana -- portrayed by Al Pacino in the 1983 classic crime drama, "Scarface." Guess what she looks like now!
If the walls of Kenny Rogers' old estate could talk, they'd be screaming about the time the Gambler sunk a jump shot on Michael Jordan -- and they'd also say the place is up for auction.
The estate, known as Beaver Dam Farms, features a 12,000 sq. foot mansion on 973 acres outside Athens, GA. It's got 5 separate guest houses, 2 pools, 2 tennis courts and an 18-hole golf course! Unclear if there is an actual island in an actual stream on the premises.
Kenny knew when to fold 'em -- he sold the place back in 2003, but he's helping the current owners promote a July 9 auction ... where the opening bid is an absolute steal at $3.5 million.
Back in the '80s, Kenny held an annual charity event with pro athletes and celebs -- and legendarily faked MJ out of his Jordans. Luckily for Michael, the basketball court's been replaced by an equestrian center.
Chris Cornell just got his hands on the mastertapes for his legendary grunge album -- featuring Soundgarden and Pearl Jam members -- and it only took him 25 years to do it.
We're told Cornell and his label, A&M Records, recently settled a bitter, drawn-out lawsuit over the "Temple of the Dog" recordings. Chris and A&M actually got the physical tapes back on Tuesday ... ending the battle with the album's producer, Rick Parashar.
Parashar had kept the 1991 masters -- which are iconic since the band's one and only self-titled record featured Cornell, Eddie Vedder and future Soundgarden and Pearl Jam members.
When Parashar died his family continued to fight A&M for ownership, but with the settlement ... Cornell finally celebrated with a victory photo.
We're told the label's looking to reissue the album for the 25th anniversary.
Pink and Carey Hart must be crazy, because they're determined to sell their piece of paradise.
The couple has listed the Point Dume estate in Malibu for $12,995,000. It's more than 7,400 square feet, with 6 bedrooms and bathrooms. And it goes on and on ... an enormous closet, guest apartment with a full kitchen for the guests you don't really like that much, a cabana, a pool ... and did we mention panoramic ocean views.
They tried selling it last year for $13,995,000, but no takers. So now it's a bargain.
Maria Shriver was a very satisfied customer after some morning activity with her longtime boyfriend.
Maria and political analyst Matthew Dowd took a stroll around her Brentwood neighborhood, and they both looked very amused.
They could be laughing about the fact she's STILL married to Arnold Schwarzenegger -- nearly FIVE years after she filed to divorce him! As TMZ first reported ... Arnold's dragging his feet on signing the docs, even though they've settled on how to split their assets.
Maria and Matt don't seem worried ... they've been a thing for more than 2 years now.
President Obama won't be getting outta Dodge after the election, instead he and the First Lady are moving just a couple miles from the White House ... into a rental crib.
The Prez and Michelle Obama reportedly signed the lease on an 8,200 sq foot Tudor-style home in nearby Kalorama -- a quiet Georgetown-adjacent 'hood. Barack and Michelle are sticking around the Beltway so Sasha can finish high school.
As for their new digs -- first reported by Politico -- it has mostly white interior and plenty of room to entertain guests with 9 bedrooms and 8.5 baths.
The President's landlord is Joe Lockhart -- Bill Clinton's former press secretary. At least he's a democrat ... y'know, just in case they need a few extra days to make rent.
